Toyin Abraham Blasts Lagos State Gov’t For Bamise’s Horrific Death
Abraham criticizes the government for failing to put CCTV cameras in its buses.

Toyin Abraham, a Nollywood actress, has criticized the Lagos State administration for the heinous way in which Bamise was murdered.
The 22-year-old fashion designer was reportedly slain onboard a Lagos State government BRT vehicle.
The movie blasted the government for its incapacity to install CCTV in its bus fleets in a picture uploaded on her Instagram page on Tuesday, March 8, 2022.
“It is sad enough that Nigeria is not safe but to think that a place or thing considered as property like BRT is now considered a dangerous place should all get all of us concerned. But I have few questions for Lagos State Government, why are the BRT buses not fitted with CCTV cameras?” she wrote.
“What measure have you put in place since this incident that made you assure Lagosians that the BRT buses are now safe? Are we truly safe or your speech is just government rhetoric, telling us what we want to hear?”
While offering her condolences to the deceased’s family, she asked Lagosians to be extra cautious and alert.
“Lagosians, please be careful, we cannot move about like everything is okay. Things are not okay if we are not safe inside government buses.”
“And to the family of Ayanwole Oluwabamise I sympathize with you. Some of us will reach out to see how you can go through this phase with some measure of ease-no easy way in grieve. May God truly console you. This is such a sad incident!”
Bamise was reported missing on Saturday, February 26, 2022, after taking a BRT bus from Chevron Bus Stop in Lekki to Oshodi at about 7 p.m.
Bamise reportedly sent distress texts to her pals when she became uncomfortable in the vehicle owing to the driver’s behavior.
She was claimed to have texted them the car information and requested them to pray for her in case anything happened to her.
Sadly, she was discovered deceased a few days following her abduction.
